For your Hollywood Bowl/Cinespia/outdoor feasting pleasure: a $50 fully stocked picnic pack for two from Marcona. (Wine included, naturally.) Plus: exclusive, mouthwatering Wagyu steaks from D’Artagnan (Thomas Keller’s meat guys). And a $40 iPhone/iPod charger made from a literary masterpiece. (We’re counting Jurassic Park as a masterpiece.)
Things to do for June 21, 2012
Awful Scripts, Dirty Dancing and New Swimsuits
The weekend thinks Kate Upton must have a great personality.
When You’re at the Beach, Wear These
In solidarity with the solstice, the best-named surf wear company around (Warriors of Radness) has launched a new line of washed-out trunks and T-shirts. They look like they’ve been sitting in the sun, on a beach towel somewhere, for years. So make sure you wash ’em before wearing.
A Dance-Along Dirty Dancing Screening
Your inner Swayze: never far beneath the surface. Especially here: at Grand Performances tomorrow, in conjunction with the Los Angeles Film Festival, you’ll be taking some salsa lessons... before Dirty Dancing screens with live dancing. You’ve never felt this way before.
A Very Fred Segal Summer Sale
After work on Friday, the usual drill: a stiff drink and a loosened tie. And that’s great. But this week, maybe do it at Fred Segal in Santa Monica, where in addition to your cocktail you can get a whole lot of stuff—Levi’s, shirts, shoes, furniture—at half off.
Staging a Terrible Script for Laughs
Like most people in this town, you’ve read a few pretty awful scripts. Many of them get made. But a select few get mounted onstage, unaltered, and played for laughs—like Abi’s Choice, over at Sacred Fools this weekend. We’re sure there’s an agent somewhere demanding his cut.
Introducing Mr. C Yacht Club
You’re familiar with Mr. C hotel. You’re familiar with yachts. But you’re not familiar with Mr. C Yacht Club, a nautically minded new brunch party happening on the hotel pool deck, with pizzas, Bellinis, Darren Dzienciol (the Beverly) and waitresses in Bermuda shorts. Because it didn’t exist until now.
